If you’re a licensed GameCube developer, that is. Check out what five very talented professionals are working on in their spare time!
Working in the gaming business is more than a full-time job. But five talented Chrono Trigger fans are so dedicated to the business that they do it when they’re off payroll as well.
Chrono Trigger Resurrection is a fully three-dimensional, independent remake of the Super Nintendo classic Chrono Trigger made from scratch. This is no fan game like you’ve seen before, though. Director and Programmer Nathan Lazur and his team are creating professional-quality software using Xbox and GameCube development kits. Their goal is to recreate ten of the most memorable Chrono Trigger scenes for a Christmas 2004. They are well on their way, too—just check out some of these screens:
Not bad for a demo 25% complete! Luis Martins and David Ying’s graphical prowess are accompanied by a fully rearranged soundtrack! Be sure to check out the Chrono Trigger Resurrection media page for a sampling of Mathew Valente’s fantastic musicianship. Michael Demirel’s animation work will be showcased in a trailer when the project is closer to completion.
Since this is currently an independent project completely unaffiliated with Square Enix, console versions of the Chrono Trigger Resurrection demo will only be available to official developers with access to GameCube or Xbox development kits. Fortunately, a free PC version will be available for public consumption as well.
